A local court here today sent Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala’s son Vikas and his friend Ashish to two-day police custody for allegedly stalking and attempting to abduct the daughter of an IAS officer earlier this week.

Vikas Barala and Ashish Kumar, who were arrested yesterday and charged with the attempted abduction of a 29-year-old-woman, were produced before a court today. The duo, who left the Sector 26 police station in the afternoon amid tight police security, reached the district court complex at around 2:20 pm. 

They were re-arrested yesterday after they were charged with a non-bailable offence of attempted abduction under section 365 of the IPC and section 511, which relates to an attempt to commit an offence punishable with life or other imprisonment. 

 

Vikas and Kumar had earlier been arrested on Saturday following the woman’s complaint but released on bail as they had been booked under bailable sections of the IPC and the Motor Vehicles Act. 

The stalking incident—and the release of the accused—triggered nation-wide outrage and a spate of protests. The two accused yesterday joined the police investigation at the sector 26 police station, where they were grilled and later arrested. 

Varnika Kundu, 29, daughter of Haryana Additional Chief Secretary VS Kundu, had complained to police that the two accused had stalked and intimidated her and tried to abduct her on August 4-5 night.
